SO naturally I was cautious about reading Carve the Mark. However I was pleasantly surprised. Despite a slow start, Carve the Mark was exactly what I wanted out of a YA dystopian scifi. Alternating points of view between two […]

Review: The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

WoW #125 – Undying by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m anxiously waiting on Undying by the sequel to Unearthed. While I didn’t love the first book, it kept my attention and the ending left me begging for more SO I’m currently dying to get my hands on Undying. The best way I can describe this series is as a mix of Indiana Jones and Firefly. There’s action, […]
